Rihanna has taken to Twitter to thank fans for supporting her new single, Diamonds.

The song - which is the first cut to be taken from RiRi's seventh studio LP - got its first play on radio stations across the world yesterday, leaving the Bajan babe's fans more than impressed with her latest effort.

Speaking of the response to the track, Rihanna tweeted: "Im floored and humbled! Thanks to everybody y'all are the greatest.

"I just wanna send blessings to everyone who was a part of making this day a special one for me! I won't ever forget this day, so thanks to u."

Diamonds has been written by Australian singer Sia and sees the We Found Love hitmaker team up with producer Benny Blanco.

The tune contains the lyrics: "Find light in the beautiful sea/ I choose to be happy/ You and I, you and I/ We're like diamonds in the sky."

The chorus centres around the hook: "So shine bright, tonight you and I/ We're like beautiful diamonds in the sky/ Eye to eye, so alive/ We're like beautiful diamonds in the sky."

Rihanna has been taking part in a number of photoshoots in the UK this week, with the 24-year old spotted at Heathrow Airport earlier today (27th September), leaving our shores.
